I have downloaded OOO 2.3, install in a hard drive first,
and if install path have spaces, it fails to start (error window).
If install path have no spaces, works fine.
Later, you can move to install path with spaces and remains
I posted here because did not find a bug forum.
I checked all 4 localized packages personally to ensure they work when there are spaces in the path and all do on first and second launches. So, there is something else in your path that must be causing an issue. Using anything like dollar signs or other non-letter characters?
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
